Sample Answer:

Dear Anila,

Hope you are doing great and can write back to me about the things you have been doing these days. I would love to have you among us in India and this coming Republic Day is an excellent opportunity to enjoy a public holiday together.  

You can fly to India from Kuwait on 24th January and stay with us for a week or so. Last time you wrote to me that you have available paid vacations that you are planning to take. I think you should take it now and visit us.

Republic Day is the day the inception of the Constitution in India came into existence. On that day, we, as a nation, formally adopted the Constitution as the guiding document and became an independent republic! The main Republic Day celebration is held in the national capital, New Delhi, and this is an excellent opportunity to enjoy the national parade and show our respect.  

I also have several other plans for us. I will take you to my cousin's graduation day, which is on 29th January. On the 31st night, we will have a party where I will invite our common friends and welcome the new year.

I am eagerly waiting to hear that you would be able to make it.

With love and warm wishes,
